Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Speckledtrout First Laminate Installation
We decided to replace the twelve year old carpet in our office room. After researching the pro's and con's of various flooring options we decided to give Pergo XP a try. With the availability of online DYI forums and how to video's, the fact I had no previous experience working with a laminate floating floor system wasn't intimidating. Having the right tools for any project is the first step so I invested in a 85 tooth Diablo blade for my table saw. The real work involved removal of the carpet tack strips and padding staples. I still believe someone got crazy with the staple gun. Once the floor was prepped and cleaned, the actual laminate installation was straightforward and enjoyable. This flooring has been down for three weeks therefore I cannot say much about the long term appearance and wear factors however much to my disappointment the floor was easily marred by a step stool which had hard nylon caps on the feet. 75% of the weight leading to our decision to use Pergo XP was the durability claim. Hence the four star rating.

We loved these floors in our previous home and plan to put Pergo XP in our new home as well. We received a lot of compliments and sold a few people on laminate flooring. Our clawed cat, 100 pound and 70 pound dogs played on these floors and never left a scratch. We even had to move our refrigerator onto it for two days while we tiled the kitchen. With only a piece of cardboard under it there were no dents or scratches left behind except on the edge of a board where there was a mishap when moving it back over the floor transition. This was easily fixed with some super glue and a wood stain pen.
We had never installed any kind of flooring before so installation wasn’t easy at first, but went quickly once we figured it out. An issue we came across is that each box was made at either a U.S. or Canadian Factory, and the two factories produced very different finishes. The U.S. factory made a board that looked more ashy and waxy. It didn’t come across as a nice variation in color, but rather a different kind of flooring mixed in. Ironically, my other complaint was the lack of variation in color/shading. Without being able to see the seams between boards, it would all kind of look like one sheet. We plan on using the hand sawn oak next time for the color/shade variation it appears to have.

I have a big dog that comes to visit, and likes to run and play. This floor will should take the abuse and not have to be sanded down and refinished after a few years.
I installed the product myself, it was easy to do but I have a background in carpentry.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kristen Not exactly what I pictured
After laying a few rows down I could see it was a lot more "liney" or grainy, maybe rustic, not sure how to describe it, than I was expecting from the sample.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sammi Lay it long-ways
My initial plan was to get an engineered wood and I had it all picked out. I had my Maltese with me when I took back the sample and it so happened that on the way to return the engineered wood sample and put in my order for it, I went around a corner and my dogs toenails made a 10" long scratch in the engineered wood. Yikes! I am soooo glad that happened! I then took a test piece of THIS laminate home and put it through some tests, gouging it, soaking it, etc. I was amazed at it's resilience. Even trying my hardest the only way I could put even a tiny scratch on it was to gauge it as hard as I could with a knife. That was all I needed to buy 1000 sq ft of it and it is fantastic. I am very happy with it in every way. Three dogs running around on it all the time and not a mark. I thought being darker that it might show dust really bad but it has not been an issue, a dust mop every couple of weeks does the trick, it doesn't show dust excessively at all and is very low maintenance to keep looking clean. My only piece of advice is to lay it so that the long pieces go the length of the room as it makes the room look bigger. Hallways look good either way.

My husband installed our Pergo XP Highland Hickory floors about 3 weeks ago, they look great! Not that difficult to install and with having a very energetic 5 yr old and playful dog, the floor looks like we never walk on it. Very strong and durable I highly recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff13 Easy to install, easy to cut preciesly, great apperance.
Product was easy to install and when making cuts on it using a table saw, it cut nice and clean. Planks fit well together and once locked in place they stayed without numerous adjustments. The overall look of the Highland Hickory is great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hockeyfan This floor will make your home beautiful!
We chose this flooring because we wanted a high quality laminate and this fits the bill. It looks like wood and has a nice grain texture. It has a nice sheen to it that is part of the product - no waxing needed. The color is rich looking and dark enough that we can see dust and hair (we have a long haired white dog) and vacuum it right up. We vacuum frequently and for deeper cleaning we use an Armstrong wood and laminate floor cleaner that we put in a bottle attached to a spray mop (Rubbermaid Reveal found at Walmart). We had the flooring professionally installed and the Home Depot installers did a great job. Our flooring replaced all the carpet in our home and we extended it into the kitchen where it has proven to withstand spills. Our house looks so much better with continuous flooring throughout. The only con we have found is that it is slippery for our dog but after 7 months of having this floor he has adapted pretty well. If you are considering wood floors in your home, give this one a good look.

This is my third room with this product. I have received many positive comments from people who I showed it to. I would use it again. The installation is fairly simple once you get the hang of it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anne A good buy
We have been really pleased with our choice of this product. It looks much better in person than I had imagined, so needless to say I was happy! Our installer even thought it was good, and the real test--my father-in-law (and a wood worker)-- couldn't say enough good about it, even though he was skeptical at the idea. Great product!

We purchased and installed this flooring ourselves. It was easy to install and cost effective. It has held up great. After, 10 years of heavy useage(dogs,cats,grandkids and farm life the flooring still looks great. We do have a few joints popping up now. Which, is why I give it a 4 star. Overall it has outperformed the much more expensive flooring we replaced it with.

This product is great. Has the look of real hardwood and feels like wood when you walk on it. Installation wasn't quite a "snap" but routine and went together solid. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OldNewHomeowner Handsome and durable. Needs careful installation.
Pergo XP has an excellent reputation. It is rated AC-4 for wear. The average DIY-er will be able to install it successfully, if (s)he proceeds carefully. Two friends and I installed 650 ft² in three days. The job had a dozen or so tricky cuts which slowed things down. Even though Pergo has padding built in, I added an underlayer of 2 mm padding for extra cushion, sound-deadening and minor leveling. Like most DIY projects, proper preparation is the key to success. Make sure your floor is clean, dry, level and above all FLAT (1/16" in 10 feet). Sand high spots, and fill low spots with self-leveling compound.
Care of the installed floor is easy: run a dust mop over it every other day. Mop up spills immediately.

Never installed a Laminate Floor before, and was quite hesitant doing it myself. The Installation Video on this Flooring helped enormously. Was harder tearing up the old carpeting than installing this flooring. Wife likes this Highland Hickory so much we are going from 1 bedroom to another bedroom, hallway & dining room. Just hope Home Depot doesn't run out of it ....

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman2015 Highland Hickory
I installed approximately 350 square feet of this Highland Hickory. It installs as others do but the ends are very hard to get even to press down and lock. You can be off by a few thousands of an inch and it will not lock.
Even though the surface is very hard The tongue and groove is not strong. After having it in for one month I feel the seams moving. Not at all what I have felt with other laminate flooring. I would not recommend this product to anyone else. I don't know how long it will last.
